As the Club’s 34th president, Brady follows the tenure of Ben B. Hollingsworth Jr. of Houston, Texas.
“As a long-time hunter-conservationist, Tim has served the Club tirelessly in multiple capacities,” said outgoing president Hollingsworth Jr. “He is well prepared to take on this leadership role because of his vast experience in multiple activities of the Club. I feel very good about handing over the reins to Tim as he leads the continuing execution of our mission to promote the conservation and management of wildlife and its habitat.”
Before being elected president, Brady served in various Club officer positions, most recently as Executive Vice-President of Conservation. Prior to that he was Executive Vice-President of Administration from 2013 through 2016, and Treasurer from 2006 through 2012.
Brady said, “The accomplishments of the Boone and Crockett Club over its 131 years are remarkable and have in some way touched every American, whether it’s finding plentiful game during hunting season, visiting one of our magnificent National Parks, or enjoying the splendor of one of our beautiful National Forests. Even with all our past successes, there remains much to be done as we have a significant number of challenges to wildlife and natural resources. But, with the help of our members and other like-minded groups, we will continue to work diligently to preserve our hunting heritage and promote conservation policy that encourages management of habitat and wildlife based on sound science.”
